Subject: RE: Regional British TV folk programmes
I used to live in Lincolnshire, but rather than tune in the the local radio programme I'd head up to the attic and listen to a folk show from Humberside. It might have been called the Folk and Roots Show, but I don't remember very well.
It was hosted by Henry Ayrton, and reception wasn't great (hence listening in the attic) - but the music was wonderful. I ended up going to Beverley Folk Festival because of my interest in those broadcasts.
Chris Wade appeared on the show quite a lot, and she later went on to run a music agency called
The show was notable for having some interesting guest appearances by Roger Wilson, Richard Thompson (once only I think) and others.
